Seeing Spartanburg in a New Light Hosts Closing Celebration

Seeing Spartanburg in a New light will hold a closing celebration on Tuesday April 25th, 2017 from 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm. Ceremonies will take place at several of the public art site locations across the city simultaneously. 
 
In 2015, the City of Spartanburg was selected as one of four temporary public art projects from across the United States to receive a grant award from the first-ever Bloomberg Philanthropies Public Art Challenge. Seeing Spartanburg opened on October 4, 2016 and included nine temporary art installations in public spaces within ten neighborhoods throughout the city. The project is a partnership among the City of Spartanburg Police and Community Relations Departments, internationally renowned light and digital media artist Erwin Redl, the Chapman Cultural Center, and neighborhood associations. Seeing Spartanburg built on National Night Out, an annual event that promotes crime prevention efforts, police-community partnership, and neighborhood camaraderie. Planning and Design expanded sisteen months and culminating with opening on National Night Out October 4, 2016. Over the past seven months, the LED light and video installations transformed open spaces lending to more vibrant communities, inspiring local residents’ creativity, and lighting up Spartanburg on a national level. The closing celebration will feature live music across all nine sites, as well as comments from local residents, Mayor Junie White, Police Chief Alonzo Thompson and community leaders on the impact this project has had within their neighbourhoods and the City. Site Locations:

  • “Benchmark Spartanburg” Forest Park CC Woodson Center | 210 Bomar Ave 29306 
 
Jennifer Evins, President and CEO of Chapman Cultural Center says: “This has been a true public art process that has resulted in a transformational experience for our entire city including visitors to Spartanburg. The unique planning and design process with Artist Erwin Redl gave our residents and Spartanburg police officers the opportunity to be creative and explore the process of learning to trust one another and share positive experiences. Throughout the last eighteen months, Seeing Spartanburg truly shined a light of hope and community collaboration that all communities strive to achieve. I am extremely grateful to the hundreds of neighborhood residents, City Police and staff, and over sixty-five collaborative community partners that made the project a brilliant success.”

Star Party April 22 at Ingram Planetarium

It’s a Star Party! Ingram Planetarium will host a free telescope observing session at 7 pm on April 22 in association with the North Carolina Science Festival’s 5th Annual Statewide Star Party.

Learn about the endless wonders of the April cosmos during a live star show inside the planetarium’s dome theater, then step outside and discover these celestial sights for yourself using the planetarium’s telescopes. Trained staff will be available to show you how the telescopes work and direct you to the more interesting astronomical sights.

As part of the evening’s free events, we will feature a special showing of the planetarium’s newest program, “From Earth to the Universe,” at 7 pm. The night sky, both beautiful and mysterious, has been the subject of campfire stories, ancient myths and awe for as long as there have been people. A desire to comprehend the Universe may well be humanity’s oldest shared intellectual experience, yet only recently have we truly begun to grasp our place in the vast cosmos. To learn about this journey of celestial discovery, from the theories of the ancient Greek astronomers to today’s grandest telescopes, we invite you to experience “From Earth to the Universe!”

The guided tour of the night sky and brief explanation of the telescopes on hand for observation will begin at 7 pm in the Ingram Planetarium’s full-dome theater. After sunset, everyone is welcome to step outside and gaze at a selection of the night sky’s offerings through a variety of our telescopes. Outdoor observing is estimated to begin at approximately 8 pm.

As this is an outdoor activity, outdoor observing is dependent upon the weather. Please call Ingram Planetarium at 910-575-0033 or visit our Facebook page on the afternoon of the event to ensure that it will be taking place.

Ingram Planetarium is located at 7625 High Market Street in Sunset Beach, NC. The April 22 star party is free; donations will be gladly accepted. Planetarium seated is limited so arrive early to guarantee admission. For more information, call 910-575-0033 or visit www.MuseumPlanetarium.org.

COLUMBUS SHIPS PINTA and NINA to LAND in BEAUFORT SC

The Pinta and the Nina, replicas of Columbus’ ships, will open in Beaufort, SC Friday, April 21 .  The ships will be docked at the Downtown Marina, 1006 Bay Street until their departure early Wednesday morning, April 26.

The Nina was built completely by hand and without the use of power tools.  Archaeology magazine called the ship “the most historically correct Columbus replica ever built.”  In 2005, the Pinta, also a caravel, was launched in Brazil and was the first ship to sight land in the New World.    Historians consider the caravel the Space Shuttle of the fifteenth century.

Both ships tour together as a new and enhanced sailing museum for the purpose of educating the public and school children on the caravel, a Portuguese ship used by Columbus   and many early explorers to discover the world. Before him, the Old World and the New remained separate and distinct continents and ever since their fates have been bound together for better or for worse.

While in port, the general public is invited to visit the ships for a walk-aboard, self-guided tour.  Admission charges are $8.00 for adults, $ 7.00 for seniors, and $6.00 for students 5 – 16.   Children 4 and under are Free.  The ships are open every day from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.    No reservations necessary.

Teachers or organizations wishing to schedule a 30-minute guided tour with a crew member should call 1 787 672 2152 or email columfnd1492@gmail.com .  Minimum of 15.  $5.00 per person.  No Maximum. Visit our website at www.ninapinta.org.

Golf author Pete Hoyer to speak at Sunset River Marketplace April 13

J. Peter (Pete) Hoyer is scheduled to speak at Sunset River Marketplace on Thursday, April 6 from 10 – 11 a.m. as part of the gallery’s ongoing Coffee With the Authors series. Characters On the Green: Everyday Golfers are the Real Character of the Game is Hoyer’s first book. Inspiration came after more than 40 years of golfing with zany personalities and their unique situations. Undoubtedly, readers have met some of these characters whether on the course or elsewhere. It is intentionally lighthearted and fun, much like the game of golf is supposed to be for amateurs.

 

Hoyer is a retired military veteran, honored as a Distinguished Member of the U.S. Army Transportation Corps Regiments and for continued service with the Dept. of the Army. During his years of combined military and civilian service, he has mentored and taught logistics and transportation to soldiers of every rank. He commanded an Army transportation truck company and was executive officer of a logistics battalion, among many other assignments. He holds a B.A. degree from the Citadel and a Masters from Webster University, as well as a second Masters from Troy State University.

 

He has been involved in several professional tournaments. He was a marshal at the 2013 and 2014 PGA tournaments and the 2014 U.S. Open at Pinehurst. For 17 consecutive years he directed an annual amateur tournament on Veterans’ Day. When he’s not on the course, he volunteers to coach youth baseball and golf teams. He currently resides in North Carolina with his golf-weary wife, Carol.

 

The event at Sunset River Marketplace is free, but seating is limited so reservations are required. Call the gallery at 910.575.5999 to hold your spot.

 

Sunset River Marketplace showcases work by approximately 150 North and South Carolina artists, and houses some 10,000 square feet of art work in virtually every genre. Custom from, painting and pottery classes, and art workshops are also offered through the gallery. Since opening its doors in 2002, Sunset River Marketplace has supported not only the visual arts, but literary and performing arts as well. It has become a popular community center and art hub from both NC’s Brunswick County and nearby Horry County, SC.

 

Sunset River Marketplace is located at 10283 Beach Drive SW, Calabash, NC. Hours are Monday through Saturday, 10  a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information call 910.575.5999 or visit the website: www.sunsetrivermarketplace.com. For daily updates, “like” the gallery on Facebook .
